Paterson: "We're a level-headed group"
Two goals in two games and a Man of the Match performance on Saturday made for a fitting end to the week for Callum Paterson.
The Scot has scored seven goals in just 23 Championship appearances since making his debut for the Club back in October: a fantastic return for a player that has evidently - and audibly - won over the City faithful.
And whilst Callum was delighted with another goal and three more crucial points, his evaluation of the result highlighted an awareness for continued focus and concentration amongst Neil Warnock’s promotion-chasing squad.
“It feels good and we’re happy to keep this run going,” said the 23-year-old.
“It was pretty shoddy defending from myself at the end [that led to the goal] and we need to cut out those sorts of mistakes, but it’s good to be back on the score sheet and take another three points.
“Having come back from the injury and overcome the hurdles I have, it’s a great feeling to be scoring goals again.”
City remain second going into Tuesday evening’s clash with Brentford – now just three points off leaders Wolves and four clear of third placed Aston Villa.
With games ticking away and City now having registered six wins on the bounce, there’s a palpable feeling of optimism in the group and in the stands.
But, as Callum stated in the aftermath of Saturday’s defeat of Birmingham City, focus remains firmly on the Bluebirds’ games ahead, rather than the performances of their rivals.
“We’re a grounded and level-headed group and we concentrate on ourselves first and foremost,” he admitted.
“If other results go our way then that’s fantastic, but as long as we keep winning we’ll be okay.”
Of course, with Callum on the scoresheet so regularly it’s making for many a memorable moment in the celebration stakes – but what are they all about?
“[The last two] are from a game on the PS4 called Fortnite that all the kids are playing so I thought I’d give it a bash,” he told iFollow Cardiff City on the final whistle.
So now we know!
